Finding Fitness Classes on the Road
Imagine you're in an unfamiliar city and you're looking for a restaurant reservation. What do you do? Probably visit OpenTable and find a restaurant and a reservation. Done. Now imagine you're in an unfamiliar city and you're looking for a yoga class. It's almost this exact scenario that faced Megan Smyth, co-founder and CEO of Go Recess, Inc. just one year ago. GoRecess.com, still in beta, is a new website that aims to be the "OpenTable for boutique fitness industry." That's a description that fits Caroline Schuman, a book publishing sales director and self-described yogi. The launch of GoRecess is a product of the growing trend of boutique fitness studios – think Core Fusion and Bikram Yoga rather than Gold's Gym – and purports to be the only company that aggregates these classes and allows you to book on one site. Smyth said she sees a huge opportunity in the travel market. Still, the class times, locations and prices were very clear, as was the actual booking process.

29 Cool Places To See Before You Die. The Coolest Natural Places.
Na świecie jest ogrom dziwnych miejsc, o których nigdy nie usłyszymy (oraz których raczej nigdy nie zobaczymy na własne oczy). Na przykład, na Oceanie Indyjskim jest archipelag czterech małych wysp, które wyglądają tak dziwnie, że trudno uwierzyć że są istnieją naprawdę. Archipelag nazywa się Socotra i jest zlokalizowany koło Yemenu. Co odróżnia Socotrę od innych archipelagów to fakt, że powstał i utrzymał się w dużej izolacji od świata zewnętrznego. Główna wyspa archipelagu, Socotra, jest idealnym przykładem na to jak dziwne to miejsce. Archipelag Socotra to odizolowany obszar. Jedna trzecia wszystkich roślin na tej wyspie nie występuje nigdzie indziej na świecie. Zaliczają się do nich słynne drzewa smoczej krwi (Dracaena cinnabari). Socotra to jedna z najbardziej odizolowanych mas pochodzenia kontynentalnego (nie stworzonych przez wulkan). Główna wyspa ma trzy obszary geograficzne: wąskie równiny wybrzeża, wapienny płaskowyż przecinany licznymi jaskiniami i Góry Haghier.

8 Amazing Inexpensive Countries To Live In For A Year
How to Use a Hotel Concierge
A few years ago, Kate and I took a trip to San Francisco for business. The company that flew us out there set us up in a high-end hotel right near the Embarcadero. We usually stay at something like a Holiday Inn Express, so this was a completely new experience for us. When we entered the hotel lobby, I noticed a little desk to the side that had the word “Concierge” on the front of it in big gold letters. My only knowledge of concierges at this point had come from watching Tim Curry play one in Home Alone 2. I had a vague idea they were there to help hotel guests, but I thought it was something extra you had to pay for. Everything I knew about concierges had come from this guy. As it turns out, I was quite wrong. One morning, I was in the lobby on my smartphone looking for a place to get a haircut. I was amazed at how helpful he was. Don’t hesitate to ask. No request is too big (within reason). Need to execute a super romantic date for your gal or an event for your business retreat?
In recent years, big cruise operators such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Star Cruises have spent heavily on soaring atriums, sushi bars, cabaret shows, and on-deck water slides to woo vacationers. Don’t tell that to John McGuffick, who’s spent months at a time at sea on cargo vessels—happily ensconced in quarters more suited to a Trappist monk than a Caribbean cruiser. “The food can be pretty ordinary, and you have to be prepared to go with the flow,” says the 72-year-old retired farmer from Australia whose 10 trips via ocean freighter have taken him to dozens of ports across Asia, Europe, and North America. Shipping companies like the dollars passengers such as McGuffick can bring aboard. It’s not luxurious and not exactly cheap: About $115 a day secures travelers a bed and three meals on some of the largest vessels ever built. Global trade is increasing at only half the average annual pace of the past 20 years. —With Nicholas Brautlecht
Travelers Are Taking No-Frills Cruises on Ocean Freighters
In the last five years, the dollar has grown against almost every currency on earth We’ve got just over a month before the election, which means there’s not much time to plan your exit strategy in case Donald Trump winds up in the White House (at the very least, we should all take one last trip before The Donald starts WWIII). Plus, right now might be the best time in history to travel. Sure, you might have a few less inches of legroom than you did in the 1950s, and the food might be less free than it used to be (it's still just as unappetizing). In the last five years, the U.S. dollar has gone up against almost every world currency – at least 19% against more than 80 currencies, at least 35% against more than 45 currencies, and more than doubled against over a dozen currencies. *The map is color-coded in groups to illustrate how much stronger the U.S. dollar has grown compared to other world currencies.

Exploring Europe behind the Wheel
Filipino Traveler: Exploring Europe behind the Wheel ‘Speedo turismo’ doesn’t appeal to me. It’s exhausting, very limiting, and quite expensive. If you have travel buddies that you can bring along, planning a self-drive tour across Europe is a good choice. Together with Bobbie Carella, one of my travel buddies, I’ve embraced the spontaneity of a self-drive tour across Europe last November. Europe, why not? Countries in Europe are tourist-friendly; going beyond boundaries is as easy as crossing bridges. You’ll find everything in Europe, from culture, to fabulous history, to outstanding nightlife, mouthwatering food, picturesque villages, and the endlessly charming atmosphere. Traditional Tour Packages or Self Drive? For first-timers lone travelers and those with strict schedules, booking a tour packages is ideal. On the other hand, doing away with the guided tours to be independent explorers instead entails a lot of planning and research. Pre-departure Arrangements Packing for the Trip
By Kenneth Surath – Dubai “We are not tourists, we are travelers”… “I hate seeing tourists moving as a pact with their umbrellas on a sunny day”… “Hostels are dirty and scary”… “I hate standing beside a smelly backpacker.” These are just some of the comments I’ve heard during my past trips. Some of these came from people who are labeling themselves as ‘travelers’ while others were from the people labeled by the travelers as ‘tourists’. I don’t know what the deal is with these labels. As someone who loves traveling, I was never really conscious about the difference between the two words, until my backpacking trip in Copenhagen. A traveler packs very light. This is always one of my problems. A traveler explores the hidden gems of the city. One of my best experiences during traveling is discovering hidden gems away from the crowd. Having said that, as a first time traveler in Venice, I still made sure to walk around San Marco Square, ride a gondola and cross the Rialto Bridge. I love food.
Tourist or Traveler?
By Chino & Kylene Cancun very well known for its preeminent beaches with impeccable weather and bright sapphire waters of the Caribbean Sea. Apart from this, your night life will never be boring as it offers a wide variety of nightclubs like Coco Bongo, Palazzo and Daddy ‘O with drink-till-you drop treats. The parties will only end when the sun comes up! Cancún is located just north of Mexico’s Caribbean coast resort band known as the Riviera Maya. There are two ways to reach this place: either via North America thru NYC, USA where connecting flights are available through Emirates or Etihad. Cancun is a tourist friendly city. Naturally, the beach is the main highlight of Cancun. Isla Mujeres is another island in Cancun which is only 15minutes by ferry. Chichen Itza is a must-visit since it is now one a UNESCO world heritage site, and one of the 7 wonders of the world. For party goers like us, your night life in down town Cancun will be a blast!

I consider myself a pretty seasoned traveler and I like giving myself these dorky travel challenges: going through security without setting off the metal detectors (on the first try), using a max of 2 bins on the conveyor belt, seeing how many days I can pack into a carry-on bag… You see, I thought I got the last one totally nailed when I spent 4 days in Atlanta and only packed a carry on, but I forgot to bring underwear, so that’s sort of a false victory. (I ended up going to Target to remedy that situation, by the way). In about a week and a half I’ll be embarking on a 7-night stay in the Dominican Republic with my boyfriend. I’ve seen other folks online successfully pack multiple days in a carry-on but they employed a level of clothing reuse that I felt was suspect. 2 pairs of jeanstaupe long sleeve blousegray long sleeve shirtBetsey Johnson long sleeve tee shirt (Those are my airplane clothes. I couldn’t even really fit all the stuff on the bed to show you guys.
